i am pretty new here in this community and in Australia.

Just a quick background check:
Me and my parents are from Poland and I am born in Niemodlyn (10.06.1986).
When i was 2 years old my parents moved with me to Germany where I grew up.
During this time a forgot most of my polish - i am still able to speak and understand quite
a bit but i also would like to improve it. However, in Australia I arrived on the 10.12.2009
with my Work & Holiday Visa.
During this Visa time I applied for a sponsorship visa to get my permanent residency, which i finally have.

Currently I live in Griffith, which is like 2nd Italy ...
I haven't really met any one with polish backgrounds yet, just once when i was in Sydney at the Alchemy Restaurant.

Since I am Permanent Residence and will stick at least the next 2 years in Australia it would be
nice to make some new polish friends :)

It's so boring drinking all the spirits (zolodkowa, spyritus etc.) alone (with none polish) my parents sent me over :)

Best place to find Polish people is the Polish Club. Every major city in OZ has one. Speak to people around there and you'll instantly make contacts.

It actually is quite difficult to find real polish friends in OZ. not so difficult to find australianised poles as theyre almost all the poles I ever got to know. Even in uni, people of all races and nationality could find they're own, but not me, I was the ONLY frickin pole whom anyone ever knew. Actually at times.depressing, as it makes u feel like the mammoth from ice age, lonely in a way.

my suggestion,.is to find european and brittish friends, but good luck in finding polish friends. Maybe youll get lucky.
